“Good Pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

My husband and I were just staying overnight in this small town before heading the rest of the way to Old Quebec city. We ate at Lago and enjoyed it. My husband had a Lemondrop cocktail which was very good and he ordered a pizza which was crisp and tasty. I had the short rib ravioli and enjoyed it. They gave us a little bread and dipping oil. The prices are ok. It would be nice if they gave a little salad with the entrees. We had good service.

“Casual atmosphere, delicious food, attentive staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

The arugula and goat cheese thin-crust pizza was excellent. My hubby and I shared a salad, a pizza and had dessert with coffee.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Driving down from Quebec to Newport to celebrate my gf birthday, Lago has been an excellent choice. The frutto di mare, the veal milanesse, the antipadto and the desserts, all excellent italian taste from local farms. At the end of the evening, we got to meet the owner, great person. Lago is a landmark in Vermont, a must to taste the real italian flavour, said by my girlfriend, who is italian.
Don't miss it new time!

“Excellent food - poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

My apologies to the chef for 3 *. The cinghiale & the pappardelle were excellent- 5*. Since we were a large group we split into two larger than normal tables. While the other table consisted of the late arrivals who came after 7pm, they were served first and finished their meals before we received our entrees about 8:45pm. Ashley was an exceptionally slow waitress; a disgrace to wait staffers. Waited so long I didn't have time for after dinner coffee.

“Don't arrive any where near closing time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We went to Lago 2 years ago for some great food and service and where looking forward to returning back. What a shocking experience it was. We arrived at 8 pm on a Monday night and asked if we would be rushed been the time that we arrived and was told that we just needed to send the order in before 9 pm and after that we could take all the time we wanted. The food was not what we remembered. One of our dishes was mainly composed of canned food (antipasto). We were not even half way through our main course that the waitress asked if we wanted to have a dessert, coffee or cappuccino. The other waitress took out her uniform in front of us and to top it off, we had to listen to the kitchen staff very personal life as no background music was playing. On our way out, the waitress stared at us and was not even able to say goodbye. Sadly for us, we were there for our wedding anniversary and we will never go back.
